Mass and Holy Hour for Vocations with Mundelein Seminary

Mass and Holy Hour for Vocations with Mundelein Seminary

Join us for a Holy Hour on February 8th at 7:00pm to pray for an increase in vocations to the priesthood and celebrate Mundelein Seminary’s centennial. Seminary staff will be bringing a beautiful historic monstrance that was used at the 1926 International Eucharistic Congress held on the seminary grounds. This will be a great opportunity to come together in prayer and learn more about the vital mission of Mundelein Seminary in forming your future parish priests.

The monstrance was a gift to Cardinal Mundelein from Pope Pius XI for the 1926 International Eucharistic Congress in Chicago—the first Congress to be held in the United States. The monstrance was used in a Eucharistic Procession during the closing ceremony of the congress, which was held at Mundelein Seminary and attended by nearly 800,000 people.
